    Benny_C About as subtle as...

    Booked in! Only a one year wait this time guys, instead of two! Even better! Woot! :D
    Let's all make sure we get in and book this motel out so it's just us Zedders there - just like we did this year at Dubbo. It was THE BEST only having us to rule the roost. So much freedom and fun, without having to consider other public in the complex with our after hours activities :cool:

    Hey team, accommodation is currently at 50% capacity so there is plenty of room for anybody still wanting to join.

    There might be time to book, but I'm not sure about the plenty of rooms.

    I asked for a Twin room, got advised there was only one family room left. I told them I wasn't interested in the family room and then got told there was one Queen room left.

    Also asked about using the NSW stay voucher and was told they hadn't enrolled in the program, but the Service NSW website says differently.

    Anyway, looking forward to meeting up

    Are you sure you booked the right place? When I spoke to the manager at the beginning of the week there were at least a dozen rooms still available.

    Gilgandra motel is not listed by service NSW as a stay NSW business partner.
